Thought I was not going to make it for a while this week. Sinuses kicking my ass. But I did. and here is your Splice Link Round-up
Work has been slowly kicking my ass. I need a diversion. Time away. Something. Sarah Kate’s birthday is coming up.
I need to put in some work on a slideshow for her.
If I were still 25…I would totally go here!

If you know me at all…you are likely aware of my love for all things Sean Brock. This article is really great.
The best part is the conversation about pig breeding.
“What breed are you going to use?
It’s still in the experimental stage. No pig sex has been started yet, and we probably won’t complete it until February or March, but I’m thinking we’ll take a Berkshire and a Red Wattle, because of their build, their fat-to-meat ratio and their growth rate.
Once we breed them we’ll have a Berkawattle.
We like how the Duroc pigs are proportioned, so we plan to breed a Duroc boar to a Berkawattle sow, and we’ll get a Berkawattleroc. Then we’ll breed a Berkawattleroc with an Ossabaw boar and get a Berkawattlerocabaw.
I did a guest Q+A on Triple League Racing this week. It should be up soon.
NASCAR is road racing at the Glen.
ALMS and IndyCars are at Mid Ohio.
This is a bit of good news for the ALMS.

Have a great weekend!
